• Liquorice and basil

    From Justin Thyme@21:1/5 to All on Tue Aug 18 16:47:08 2015
    The scent of basil (Ocimum basilicum) reminds me in part of that of
    liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra). Are there any aromatic chemicals common
    to both?
    Shall we only threaten and be angry for an hour?
    When the storm is ended shall we find
    How softly but how swiftly they have sidled back to power
    By the favour and contrivance of their kind?

    From /Mesopotamia/ by Rudyard Kipling
